Happy Mother's Day

PhotobucketMy High 5 For Friday is dedicated to all the MOM'S in my life.

1. First I need to thank my amazing daughter-in-laws....Jennifer (Chad)

and Robyn (Corey)  
for being such wonderful, loving moms to my precious g-babies. I could not have hand picked any more perfect women for my son's.  They are both very loving, kind, thoughtful, hard working, dedicated Christian wife's and mom's and daughter-in laws. LOVE TO YOU BOTH !!

2. Second I need to send love my mom. Even though she is no longer with me (and I miss her terribly) - she was a fantastic mom. She was a single mom at a very young age (my dad passed away) and raised 4 children all by herself. She worked hard, taught us greats values and was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I LOVE YOU MOM !

3. Third to my grandmother - Mimmie -. She too was an amazing women. A business owner and mother. She was a single mom, owned and ran her own business for many years and did a great job on rasing my mother. I think the values began there and have carried own through the years. I LOVE YOU MIMMIE !

4. Fourth to my mother-in-law - Alene/Mammaw. She was a great mom and did a wonderful job on raising my husband and his sister. She was a hard worker (telephone company) a great wife, a loving mom and grandmother. She was a blessing in our lifes and in the lifes of her grand BOYS (5) We miss her everyday. LOVE TO YOU ALENE!!

5. And finally to all the moms I know and who are blessing in my life.

Happy Mothers day to all the Great Mothers I know
Real Mothers don't eat quiche;  
They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils  
Are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors,  
Filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough  
Doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what  
The vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'  
And get their answer when a little
Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth  
Is not measured by height or years or grade...  
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,  
Because  that is the doorway to her heart,  
The place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,  
But  true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she
Shows and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

* I'm praying each and every mother I've that reads this has a Blessed Mothers Day, today,....tomorrow, week, month, year,......because Mothers Day is not just one day out of the year. Mothers Day is 365 days plus............every year.

Weight Watchers Wednesday

On my not diet, diet...I am looking for healthy, easy recipes. I will call it Weight Watcher Wednesday.....that is where I find most of my recipes and the diet I am using as a guideline.
My hubby is my taste tester..if he gives it a thumbs up...then it gets a place of honor in my "recipe file".

I am not a big breakfast person. I like a grab and go during the work week. This recipe fits the bill...
Will be trying it out this weekend on the real mean eat quiche??

I never watched this show until several weeks ago. I was thumbing thru my NETFLIX - saw this and watched the first show, first season....I was HOOKED! I love this show, I love the theme, the clothes, the MUSIC, it so brings me home. I have visions of my parents, looking and acting just like the characters in this show. The clothes, LOVE THEM.  The thing that amazes me is that EVERYONE, drank and smoked. At work, in the elevator, at home, eating lunch, sitting at the dinner table, pregnant, in the hospitals, doctor offices, standing, sitting,walking, working, EVERYWHERE.
And the other amazing part is - they survived......
The one that I don't like, but it was the way it was in the 50 and 60's, the men were chauvanist pigs - and the women didn't think anything of it. Girls.................we've come along baby!
